Alarik has candy on the brain. I always ask the kids each morning what their dreams were about. For the last several weeks Alarik has answered, "two green suckers". After awhile he started to elaborate that the suckers were running away from him but he caught them and ate them both. This morning it suddenly changed to "two ORANGE suckers".
Last night Alarik ran up to me and needed to know where his "purple costume" was. I couldn't figure out what he was talking about and he kept loudly insisting that he needed it. Finally he said, "I want to put it on and get CANDY!" Ah...now I get it. And today's lesson is: that only works once a year. The rest of the time, you are creepy if you knock on doors all dressed up!
